"Food, in the end, in our own tradition, is something holy.
It's not about nutrients and calories.
It's about sharing; it's about honesty.
It's about identity
."

Advice is like snow - the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper in sinks into the mind.

First, by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish.
Stay reachable.
Stay in touch.
Don't isolate

Me too, I spent my childhood in north part of Croatia where snow was falling every winter. 13 years ago moved to the town on the sea and here there is no snow at all.

Still can`t get used to it after all these years, winter and holidays aren`t the same without snow. Some of my best chilhood memories are related to snow falling for days, and cleaning it with my father using big snow showels. :lol:

Talking about snow, I have only seen it in movies and pictures. Never experienced it so far but would love to someday.
I prefer it warm and sunny, rather than cold and windy and anything below 13º to 14ºC makes me uncomfortable.
